I am obsessed with this stuff. It actually tastes better than the Nutella that you’d pick up at the store.
There was a time in early marriage that I used to buy Nutella every single week. But when I started eating healthier and less processed food it quickly left the shopping list. After some playing around I found a delicious version of the hazelnut chocolate spread that I absolutely love.
Hazelnuts are a pricey nut, however you only need one cup to make a good amount of this stuff. So, I have grabbed a bunch of hazelnuts from the local health food store and now keep them in my pantry for whenever I want to make this treat.
A sourdough pancake with this hazelnut spread and sliced banana is my new go-to breakfast. It honestly feels like I’m eating dessert first thing in the morning, but I feel zero guilt.
This is a very fool proof recipe. There will be times when you are certain that you have messed it up, but trust me you haven’t. You just need to be patient when using the food processor. It will all come together, and you can always add extra sweetness at the end if desired.
I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe and give it a try. You really won’t regret it. I had a lot of fun getting this recipe just right. No drop was wasted in the process, and the kids licked the spoons and bowls clean every time.
If you give it a try, let me know what you thought or changes you made in the comments below. I’d love to hear how it went for you!
Thanks for taking time out of your day to hang out here.
